“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans‬ ‭5‬:‭8‬ NIV)

During the Civil War, a Union private was being court-martialed for sleeping at his post, resulting in a sentence of death. According to the Great American History group, President Lincoln heard of it and resolved to pardon the soldier. He immediately had it drafted and sent.

On the day of execution, the President wasn’t sure that his order had been processed since there was no reply. So he personally had his carriage take him through the heat and dust to the camp 10 miles away to make sure the soldier was spared! I’m pretty sure that man never forgot where his rescue came from!

Know today that Jesus did the same for you, coming to your rescue at just the right time. Not only does He deliver us from Hell, but also from the daily struggles we encounter. We don’t deserve it, but I gladly receive it! Celebrate your Savior! You are loved!
